Three shows down, and a lot more to go! So far, we’ve spotted tons of great trends at the Golden Globe Awards, Critics’ Choice Awards and People’s Choice Awards, however, three have totally stood out to us — two because they’re so rampant, and one because it’s so unusual. Let’s break it down:

trend up The Trends We’re Loving (So Far!) on the Red Carpet This Season

Up: 50 shades of blue. From powder to navy, the red carpet has been a sea of oceanic shades so far. On the lighter end of the color spectrum recently were Nicole Richie in a periwinkle Naeem Khan gown, Jessica Chastain in a seafoam Calvin Klein Collection number and Lucy Liu in a sky-blue floral-print creation. Ladies like Amanda Seyfried, Emmy Rossum and Amy Adams, however, slipped into deep, midnight hues. Who’s got dibs on baby and royal blue? We think we’ll find out soon.

Down: Red lips. Surprisingly, Julianna Margulies was one of the few stars sporting a classic cherry pout on the red carpet this week — most celebs went for nudes, pinks and dark, vampy shades. Expect to see more bold beauty choices — like Jessica Alba’s juicy citrus lip, Kaley Cuoco’s plum pout and Julianne Moore’s funky fuchsia smile — throughout the rest of awards season.

Up: Thigh-high slits. Sorry, Angelina: Eva Longoria and other daring stars are stealing your right leg’s thunder. Though Longoria earned the title of “Most Gam-Baring Gown” the night of the Globes, she saw some stiff competition from Lea Michele, Miranda Kerr, Halle Berry, Katharine McPhee and Claire Danes — all of whom showed off their never-ending stems in super-sexy designs. Can the hemlines possibly get higher for next week’s Screen Actors Guild Awards? They just might!
